"I recently got an offer from Wake Forest and West Point. They go with the offers I already have from Clemson, Vanderbilt and South Carolina."
When asked if he has any early leaders at the moment, Austin responded, "I don't have anyone ahead of anyone else. I'm going to all their camps this summer. Maybe by the end of the summer I will have a leader or a list of favorites."
Several new schools are showing interest in the Camden High star. "Clemson, South Carolina and Vanderbilt continue to show the most interest. I'm picking up interest from Penn State and Notre Dame now."
Austin has been working hard to prepare for his senior campaign. "I'm working out and we are just finishing up spring practice. I'm trying to get faster and stronger."
Coaches from Clemson and South Carolina have stopped by practice to watch the talented lineman. "Coach Scott came by practice one day. Coach Stockstill also came by one day."
Will distance play a major role in Austin's decision? "It really doesn't make a difference. I kind of would like to stay within 6 or 7 hours. I really don't want to go farther than that."
